Nazi Zombies A-Go-GoBy TheDevil (7 reviews) from London , 03 Jul 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a pretty good Norwegian Zombie film that doesn't take itself too seriously. Reminds on and pays homage to cult movies like Brain Dead and especially the Evil Dead series. Plenty of over-the-top-gore and humour!!! Fans of the genre should be more than pleased.
The Plot: A group of 8 Norwegian medical students are headed to a remote cabin in the mountains, find a chest of Nazi Gold and have to fight an army of evil undead Germans which have been killed during the Norwegian occupation! What more do you want?! Go rent it!

Total GeniusBy KittyWildmoor (26 reviews) , 03 Dec 2013& utterly brilliant. The Norweigans exorcise the demons of their *alleged* collaboration with the Nazis with a comic gore fest of epic proportions. Undoubtedly one of the most graphically violent horrors I've seen (and I've seen a few). You get to ahem, enjoy, Nazi Zombies being decapitated, disembowelled, driven over by a snowmobile, and everything else you could possibly imagine. (It looks great too as snow and blood is a really striking combination of colours.)The dialogue is knowingly hillarious and there's even a female character who has as much guts as some of the men. Not much more I could ask for really. BTW kids I'm signing off Love Film now it's owned by the Evil Empire Amazon who are (a) trying to take over the world (b) employing people in conditions of near slavery and (c) refusing to pay any corporation tax into the UK. Not that I expect the last paragraph to make it past the moderators, but if it does, do feel free to register your protest too.
Hilariously awful - watch it for a laugh!By Matthew (17 reviews) from Crawley , 10 Aug 2013This is hilariously awful. It reminds me of 'Bad Taste.' Killings are creatively and sometimes stylishly developed but the plot is limited as are the acting at times. But who cares? Zombies, Nazis, what's there not to like?
Worth a good laughBy wilfnelson (1 review) , 19 Jun 2013Yes it is silly, yes it has gore effects that are put to shame by big budget films and most of the jump scares might as well be telegraphed at the bottom of the screen. But what really matters, this film was fun and a perfect example of outside hollywood film making. Watch it, just dont take it too seriously
Entertaining Thrill RideBy a customer , 08 Jun 2013Awesome film, forget the other bad ratings, a real edge of your seat thriller, with parts to make you poop your pants 5 star
It tries...and sadly fails.By Rownestone (3 reviews) , 20 May 2013Good effort, and lots of nerdy references to the zombie genre. It fails as a lot of films have of late with the idea of self-aware zombies. Ironic that it refers to Evil Dead 2, which is clearly a big influnece. My suggetion? Watch Evil Dead 2 instead.
